It's been quite a long time now since we last heard about FPS Boost. If you don't know what it is (or you want a refresher!), it's a feature which allows the Xbox team to boost framerates for older Xbox One titles on Xbox Series X and Series S without any extra work required by the developer. So far, almost 100 games have received the treatment.
Since its arrival back in February, FPS Boost has improved the performance for a wide range of titles spanning everything from Fallout 4 to Star Wars Battlefront 2, and not only have many of these games jumped from 30fps to 60fps, but some of them have even been given an upgrade to a whopping 120 frames per-second.
However, we haven't actually had any word on FPS Boost since the latest addition to the lineup back in July, which was Dark Souls 3. Before that, the Xbox team dropped 74 games on us in a single batch on May 3rd, which was a very pleasant surprise - but perhaps signals why we haven't heard anything about the FPS Boost program since.
You could look at this in a few ways. Personally, I'd take a guess that the Xbox team either dropped a huge batch on us as a way of neatly wrapping up the program for the time being, or they did it because the FPS Boosts for those games were ready and they were eager to start preparing another big batch to be released at some point in the future.
And of course, there's every chance they might be saving a new batch to celebrate the 20th anniversary of Xbox on November 15th, especially given that there's an event that day, which would be fantastic if so.
Regardless of what the plans are, I really do hope Xbox has plans to continue the feature, as there are so many games on my personal wishlist that have yet to receive the treatment. It's been well documented that FPS Boost isn't designed to work with every game, but even if we're just looking at Xbox Game Studios titles, the likes of Sunset Overdrive, Quantum Break, Ryse: Son of Rome and maybe even Forza Horizon 3 would be superb candidates for a boost.
At the end of the day, we shouldn't be expecting anything - the 100 boosts we have are already a huge bonus - but if the Xbox team can find a way to add a few more to that list, it'd be a nice way to finish off the year.
